We wanted to do this blog hop to give you all a chance to show off you crafting skills. We love to meet new crafters, and to see what they create and what they love. We also wanted to have this blog hop be a way for crafters to get the word out to fellow crafters about their blog or flickr stream. We all love having new people visiting our sites and commenting on creations we are proud of, right? By participating, you will be able to get new people to discover your site and your special creations. =) We will also have blog posts on each of our blogs after the hop is over where we will showcase some of the creations in the hop that we really loved. So there will be lots of exposure possible for your blog if you join in on this fun blog hop!
Our theme, Our Favorite Things was chosen to give you the opportunity to create a new project for the hop using so you can show off your skills to the blogging world. If you have a favorite company, a favorite stamp, a favorite colorscheme or a favorite crafty style, we’d love to see you create something showing that off. =) In addition to your new card or project for the blog hop, also feel free to share a favorite project of yours from the past. In other words, show us what you’ve got!
Well, there are so many ways in which you can be or feel young. It’s not only about age but often more about how you feel! Maybe coloring stamped images makes you feel like a kid playing with crayons again. Maybe you’re new in the crafting world and are learning about crafting like a child learns about the world. Maybe you like creating projects for children or using fun images that would suit both children and light-hearted adults alike? However you may feel young, in your crafting or in your everyday life, we would love for you to join in on this blog hop!
This blog hop will take place on July 1st. We encourage you to sign up as a participating blogger and to create something new and optionally show something you’ve made earlier that fits the theme of Our Favorite Things.
